Dolphins add extra year to Raheem Mostert’s contract after running back’s Pro Bowl season



The Miami Dolphins are ensuring one of the key pieces to their backfield is in-house for the foreseeable future. The club has restructured the contract of running back Raheem Mostert to add another year to his which will keep him under team control through the 2025 season, his agent Brett Tessler announced on social media. Specifically, Mostert’s new two-year deal is worth up to $9.075 million, according to NFL Media. 

Mostert joined the Dolphins in 2022 after inking a one-year deal with the franchise. This marked the now 31-year-old’s second stint with the club after initially joining the team back in 2015 during his rookie season. He signed a two-year, $5.6 million contract extension last offseason and was set to enter the final year of that deal in 2024 before this latest restructure. 

Mostert has been an extremely productive back with the Dolphins under head coach Mike McDaniel, who also coached him during their shared days with the San Francisco 49ers where McDaniel was first the run game coordinator before being elevated to offensive coordinator. He’s coming off the best statistical season of his career in 2023 where he rushed for over a thousand yards for the first time, led the league with 18 rushing touchdowns, and was tied with Christian McCaffrey for the most total touchdowns from scrimmage (21).
